Quinn Pickering

Quinn Pickering is a pop and rock focused singer-songwriter, based out of New Westminster, British Columbia. Currently 19, playing the guitar has been a huge part of Quinn’s life since childhood. He got his start at age 8 when he put together his first band “World Is History,” performing live and recording two EP’s over the course of three years. Since that time, he has continued to create music, focusing on developing both his musicality and his songwriting, and he released his debut album, a solo project titled Losing This War, at age 16 ; a project which was produced and recorded at his home studio. In the two years since his debut Quinn has released several singles, collaborated with various musicians and completed recording on his follow up album titled Baby Blue with producer Larry Anschell of Turtle Studios, this time with the support of a full band.
Quinn’s singer-songwriter styling lends itself to capturing tone and soul within his music in a way that becomes thoughtful and almost nostalgic, while also retaining the bite and drive of rock and the easy and palatable appeal of pop music. Some of his personal influences include contemporary artists such as John Mayer, and Ed Sheeran as well as classics such as Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty, and this eclectic range of influence shows in his work. Through his use of lyricism and expert blending of melody and pacing, he is able to paint pictures with his music, transporting listeners and creating an experience.
Music, for Quinn, offers a way to both document and share his experiences in life, and to tell stories that are both personal and relatable. He also loves to mix things up, and knows the difference in quality and tone that can come from playing solo, or with a band. Through intuition and collaboration he decides on which option will benefit each track. For him, it is a truly exciting part of the process to see all of the elements of a song come together to form a finished piece. Through the collaborative sentiment that comes from working with a band, new and exciting changes can be made to a piece that allows it to take on a life of its own from conception to production.
With producer Larry Anschell having credits on albums by artists such as Pearl Jam, Sarah McLachlan, and Streetheart, Quinn has put his all into his latest album Baby Blue, which was released in the fall of 2018. With the release of Baby Blue and a fantastic new band Quinn is working towards playing larger shows and hopes to reach a wider international audience. The release of the album has been a truly exciting time, and brings to light how much passion and dedication goes into the music that Quinn creates. He knows that he will continue to write, create, perform and record, and invites anyone interested to follow along on the journey.
His work can currently be found on most major streaming platforms including CD baby, iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube and quinnpickering.org.
